Creamy Carrot Soup

My husband and I took a pranayam course here in San Diego couple of weeks back. It was for 3 days and of which one day, they provided lunch with us. They had this carrot soup that day which tasted out of the world. We all totally fell in love with the soup. My god! it tasted so good. From then I really wanted to make carrot soup at home and today I made it. It came out very well. I never thought carrot soup would taste so good. Am sure you will all like this too.. 


Carrots - 4 chopped roughly
Onion- 2 Small chopped roughly
Green Chilli (optional) - 1 
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Bay Leaf - 2 
Cloves - 3-4
Fresh Cream - 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch


In a pan heat ghee and oil. When hot add cloves and bay leaf. When the cloves start to puff up, take away cloves and bay leaf and throw them away.

In that oil, add onions and green chilli, turmeric and saute in high heat till onions caramelize. Then add carrots and saute in high heat till carrots become tender. Sprinkle water if necessary for the carrots to cook faster. 

When carrots are 90% cooked, turn off heat and let the contents cool. 

Blend everything in a blender along with some salt and make it a fine paste.

In the same pan, add this paste and bring it to a boil. Add water according to required consistency. Then add fresh cream , mix well and turn off heat. 

Serve hot with warm bread.
